PREFACE 

The use of Structural Slate for two of the most important fixtures of housekeeping, namely — the 
Kitchen Sink and the Laundry Tub,— has been a long established custom where permanency and re- 
sistance to wear and tear are essential. But it is not alone in the house that these fixtures have been 
extensively used; in Industrial Establishments, Hospitals, Schools and Colleges or wherever stability 
and long usage are a part of the requirements, slate has been an important factor. 

The many excellent characteristics of Structural Slate adapt themselves well to these two uses. 
Its qualities of being easily kept clean and sanitary, in combination with its tensile strength which 
resists wear and rough usage, are unexcelled. 

In the desire to place at the service of users of Structural Slate the years of experience in the pro- 
duction of this material, the Structural Slate Co., of Pen Argyl, Penna., is now having made a thorough 
study of the best methods of quarrying, assembling and finishing, together with recommendations as 
to standardized sizes for all types of installations. 

This Company, an organization comprising the majority of the producers of Structural Slate in 
Northampton and Lehigh Counties, Penna., has, in conjunction with the Structural Service Bureau 
ot Philadelphia, which is conducting the investigations, published the completed material as rapidly as 
it is being finished. This is the eighth of such Chapters, each of which is devoted to data, descriptions 
and drawings of separate types of installations of slate. Those already distributed are: 

Chapter 1.— Origin and Geologic Data. Commercial Grading and Standard Finishes. 
Chapter 2. — Basic Specifications. Essential Information and Preparatory Work. 
Chapter 3.— Stairways. Specification, Details and Data concerning Stairways. 
Chapter 4.— Fittings. Illustrating and describing those used with Structural Slate, 
Chapter 5 — Toilet Enclosures. Standardized Sizes and Parts, Drawings and Specifications. 
Chapter 6.— Urinal Stalls. Standardized Sizes and Parts, Drawings and Specifications. 
Chapter 7.— Shower Stalls. Standardized Sizes and Parts, Drawings and Specifications. 

While the Laundry Tubs, Sinks and Sink Tops described and priced within this Chapter are of 
the standard sizes and arrangements recommended by the Structural Slate Co., the organization of the 
Company is such and its stock of available rough slabs so large that any kind and dimension to suit 
special requirements can be produced within a reasonable cost and length of time. The adoption of 
these Industry standards where it is possible to use them, it is hoped will simplify the laying out of 
the plans of buildings. It will also enable the quarries to continuously produce the finished slabs 
throughout the year, keeping large stocks of the standard sized installations constantly on hand for 
immediate delivery, thus reducing the ultimate cost to the consumer.

CHAPTER EIGHT 

of a series on 

STRUCTURAL SLATE 



LAUNDRY TUBS, SINKS AND SINK TOPS 

STANDARDIZATION AND WORKMANSHIP 

An analysis of the sizes called for in the orders received by the various producers forming the 
Structural Slate Co., has shom^n that by far the majority of installations of both Tubs and Sinks are 
confined to a comparatively few dimensions. 

As a result, it will be found that certain of the sizes are given as ''Standards'' and these will be 
kept continuously in stock, with all pieces fitted together ready for shipment. In the other sizes, the 
parts will be kept in stock for immediate drilling of holes and assembling, there being but little delay 
in delivery. In addition, there are, of course, the special sizes and arrangements which can be devel- 
oped from the rough stock. 

In all cases both the Sinks, Sink Tops and Laundry Tubs are shipped with all slate, nuts, screws, 
and all fittings complete except for the plumbing fixtures and the supports called for, all as described 
on the various pages. The thickness of materials used in assembling them are shown in all drawings 
and at a larger scale in the details on page 21. These details and methods of assembling the slate were 
adopted as a result of constant improvement upon older methods and are recommended as giving the 
maximum of stability in each of the various types. 



LAUNDRY TUBS 

Constant usage for many years has developed three simple types of installations of Laundry Tubs, 
comprising all that is required for utility. Each of these types is shown within this Chapter. There 
are also three sizes of tubs shown and priced, but only the Size No. 1 will be kept constantly in stock, 
as there is very little call for the other sizes. They can, however, be made up at once from the slabs 
on hand. 

The height of the top of the laundry tub when set is usually 321" above the floor, although a varia- 
tion of an inch or two either way is not unusual. The various types of tubs are as follows: 

Type A: The most economical type o£ tub, with slate ends, partitions, front and back. All parts are made 
up in one piece up to three tub installations. 

Type B: Similar to Type A, except the back extends 12" above top of tub, forming a solid support for the 
faucets and plumbing pipes. This type can also be fastened to the wall with brackets if desired. 

Type C: Similar to Type B, except that a work space is provided between the back slab and the wall, with 
slate cover and end pieces. This allows all plumbing pipes to be concealed behind slate work, showing only the 
faucets themselves. 

Type D: Combination Sink and Laundry Tub. This type has been developed for use in Apartments and Small 
Houses where a minimum of space can be provided. All pans and the back are of slate, including the drain-boa:d. 
The tub is similar to Type B Tub.

Height from floor: The location of Sinks in the building depends, of course, on the space pro- 
vided and their use. In the home, for ordinary household work. Sinks have heretofore been set too 
low. This has tended to make their use back-breaking drudgery. The height may vary from 2' 6 " to 
3' 0", depending upon local practice. Our recommendation for the height which experience has shown 
to be more nearly correct than any other is 2' 10" from the floor. In hospitals it should be 3' 0". In 
industrial buildings 2' 6" is best in order to provide room for placing buckets or apparatus under the 
faucet for drawing of water. 

Type A: This is the most economical type of all-slate sink. It can be used in conjunction with slate, wood 
or enameled iron drain-board if desired. It is primarily intended for use in Hospitals, Garages, Factories and 
other places where the sink alone is required and where it is subjected to rough usage, acids, etc. 

Type B: Sink top, without apron, for use with sinks of enameled or galvanized iron or any other material. 
Can be furnished in either type of drain-board, both single and double. 

Type C: Sink top similar to Type B, except with apron at front and ends to cover the exposed outside of 
the sink, thus forming a more complete installation. 

Type D: All slate type sinks, furnished in both types of drain-boards, single or double. Front of sink con- 
tinued under drain-board as apron, with slate aprons at each end. Back is of slate, in one piece, forming the back 
of the sink as well as the splash board. 

LAVATORY TOPS 

On page 20 will be found drawings of slate lavatory tops. These are used in industrial estab- 
lishments, schools, garages, etc. They are economical, easily installed and can be kept clean with- 
out difficulty. They are usually installed in connection with galvanized or enameled iron lavatory 
bowls. No prices or sizes are given in connection with this type, as the size of top and the dimen- 
sion and shape of opening are governed by the special requirements in each case. 

SURFACES AND FINISH 

All of the slate slabs used in Laundry Tubs, Sinks and Sink Tops are of selected ribbon stock. 
(See Chapters 1 and 2 for descriotions of Structural Slate stock.) The surfaces are all furnished with a 
standard sand-rubbed finish as described and illustrated in Chapter 1. All corners have the arrises 
or sharp edges taken off, and backs are chamfered as shown on drav/ings. 

If clear stock or honed finish is required this must be distinctly specified, as otherwise the 
standardized types will be provided as described withm this Chapter. 

There will be no oil or other finish upon the slate as supplied by the slate producers. All drill- 
ing of holes for fittings and all fittings are included, but no plumbing pipes, faucets, strainer^s, brackets 
or legs are supplied. If desired, they may be selected from Chapter 4 entitled Fittings, Trimmings 
and Accessories- and specified accordingly and the cost of the fittings added to the price given for 
the fixture itself.

SUGGESTED USES 

The two methods of installing slate sinks in kitchens 
shown on this page are examples illustrating how the con- 
venience in the use of both the fixture and the room has been 
increased by the location of the sink and the surrounding 
work. In one case a shallow slate shelf is placed on top of the 
slate back and wood cupboards with doors are put under 
the sink. The other cut shews wood dressers with doors built 
in above the sink and cupboards with doors below, the entire 
fixture being covered in so that only the necessary working 
space on top is left exposed. 

The adaptability of the slate installations to any size space 
or to any complicated requirement is such as to especially 
recommend its use in the Kitchens of Hotels. Clubs, Restau- 
rants, etc. Special combinations of slate shelving in connec- 
tion with the sink or sink top together with slate washboard and floors would make such rooms com- 
pletely verm.in proof and easily kept clean. 

In the Diet Kitchens of Hospitals where all kinds of food 
must be quickly and constantly prepared and where a material 
which is easily kept clean and must be durable is essential, the 
slate sink or sink top is of especial value.
